Mental Health Resources(SPS) -- It is with profound sadness that we can confirm that two Sapulpa Public Schools students died in a car accident Wednesday afternoon in northwest Creek County. 

We are awaiting additional information and working with authorities to assist in the investigation in any way we can. 

The loss of students is devastating for our entire school community. Sapulpa Public Schools mobilized a crisis team made up of school counselors, district mental health professionals and administrators as soon as we received news of this tragic event. 

Because this accident occurred on the eve of Spring Break, we are sharing additional resources that our students, staff and families may access during the break.
